Millennials are the new generation of voters, and they’re taking over the political scene. This article will show how Millennials differ from older generations when it comes to their ideals for politics. It is important that we understand these differences in order to be able to work together on issues that affect us all. We’ll discuss five key areas where Millennials’ views diverge from those of other generations: immigration, healthcare, education, climate change and social security.
How Do Their Political Views Differ From Other Generations
Generations divide on a range of political attitudes and values, and Millennials are no exception. They are also more accepting of racial, religious and ethnic diversity.
Millennials are the most educated generation in American history, and their political views reflect that. For example, while more than 50% of Baby Boomers say immigrants do more to strengthen our country than weaken it (compared with only around 40% who say they’re a burden), more than 60% of Millennials think immigrants make America stronger.
They Find This Two Party System Oppressive
Millennials aren’t a big fan of the two party system. They find it to be too limiting and restrictive. They like to see different ideas come up instead of the same thing over and over again. They believe that there should be more than just two choices when it comes to politics. They don’t like the idea of voting for someone because their party says so
A lot of Millennials find themselves not voting for one person simply based on what their party is saying about them instead they look at each candidate individually and decide if it’s worth it or not. Millennials are frustrated with an unresponsive political system, which makes voter turnout slightly low among this demographic.
Today’s generations have different ideas about healthcare. Millennials are more likely than older generations to favor a bigger government that provides more services—but also to prioritize individual liberty over protecting traditional values.
Lack of Ideals
In the old days people had political ideals like Martin Luther King Jr. People like Martin Luther King Jr. are still considered an ideal by many but there aren’t any people in the modern world who have the same influencing power as some of the big names from the 50s or 60s had. So you can say that Millennials have a lack of political ideals. However even with the lack of strong political ideals, they are still one of the most politically active generations in the United States.
